Healdsburg Museum hosts annual holiday toy exhibit
The Healdsburg Museum, Edwin Langhart founder, is hosting its annual holiday toy exhibit starting on November 25. This year’s theme is “Mother Goose on the Loose.”
Over 100 years of toys from the community will be featured, including a collection of antique pedal cars donated to the exhibit by Healdsburg resident George Goobanoff. In addition, Mother Goose nursery rhymes such as “Little Bo Peep,” “Hickory Dickory Dock” and “Little Miss Muffet” will be “acted out” by toys.
The centerpiece of the exhibit, according to curator Holly Hoods, will be a 6-foot-tall shoe, representing the nursery rhyme “The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe.” The shoe was handmade specially for the exhibit by Jon Lacaillade.
Admission to the exhibit is free. The display will kick off with an open house 5:30-8 p.m. Friday, November 25, to coincide with the annual downtown Holiday Open House., and will run through January 31.
The Healdsburg Museum is located at 221 Matheson Street. For additional information, call 431-3325 or visit healdsburgmuseum.org.
